The good vibe guys Old Dominion are ready to leave their mark on Music City. With plans to open this summer, Odie’s lives up to OD’s No Bad Vibes appeal. Set away from the tourist frenzy, the singular concept is also about being a great place to grab a drink whether you’re in the music business, looking to just hang with your friends after work or meet some people who love music.


According to a press release, it sounds that the bar's conception was a happy accident! However when Old Dominion's Trevor Rosen and his pal ran into Ty Hauter, CEO of Good Time Design, at his restaurant in Franklin, TN, the keyboard/accordion/utility player/songwriter remembered how much fun the band had almost a decade earlier playing Hauter’s Moonshine Flats and Moonshine Beach in San Diego. That is when the wheels really started to turn!


“We didn’t quite know what it was,” Rosen said in a press statement, “but we also knew what we were missing. The more we talked, the more we realized we wanted a bar like the places we went to when we were just having our first cuts, hanging out with other writers.”





For the band who lives to play, Odie’s (re)creates something they all love. With Hauter, who understands giving bands a place to come into their own, bring the songs into the world and to the people, at the helm, that organic feel is a cornerstone of what this bar will be, as well as what sets it apart.


They hope that the bar will offer up a place away from the choas of Broadway for people to connect and swap ideas. The new bar will join the likes of Midtown staples Red Door as well as the iconic Looser's Bar.


“And we wanted it to be a place where a group of songwriters who might have a band could play,” continues Rosen, “or someone starting out might be able to be part of a writers thing and get heard. You know, pay it forward because all these years later, we know it works. That’s much better than just a temple to who we think we are.”
